With each passing day, Lionel Messi seems to be moving closer and closer to departing PSG this summer. Because the 35-year-old’s deal ends at the end of the current season and he reportedly has no intentions to renew it, it appears probable that he will leave the team.
The skipper of Argentina is gaining interest from Middle Eastern and MLS teams, as well as Barcelona, who have surfaced as potential locations.
Fabrizio Romano claims that Al Hilal, one of Messi’s admirers, has offered him an outlandish contract worth more than €400 million on a yearly basis.
One of their competitors, Al Hilal, has been pushing to make their own star purchase with Messi in mind ever since Al Nassr obtained Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United a few months ago.
Additionally, they are prepared to give the former Barcelona captain an astronomical wage of more than €400 million each year in order to finalize the move.
Then he explains that he is prioritizing staying in Europe because he wants to continue fighting at the highest level.
Barcelona wishes to make a last-dance offer to the seven-time Ballon d’Or champion, but first they need to fix the Financial Fair Play issues. Only then can they begin talks and make an offer.
Messi has already been offered a deal by PSG, the reigning French champs, but he has declined it because he wants sports assurances from them.
The two parties’ interactions reportedly becoming strained, however, makes a split seem like the most probable outcome. Furthermore, Messi prioritizes a summer return to Barcelona, and his family is on board with the plan, according to sources in France.
Due to this, Messi is unlikely to move to Saudi Arabia right now, despite Al Hilal’s preposterous wage guarantee of over €400 million per year.
